Applique is finished! I opted not to make each leaf 3D. Stem ends are covered with yo-yos.
Now it is on to the quilting. The free motion design shown on the pattern is similar to the overall piecing and appliqué with cherries and leaves and vines. I'll try that with pencil and paper and see if I can master it.
Have a lovely week and check out Judy's blog for more great quilts.
